A Gift for You

Tis the season, the season to look back and take stock of the year past as we look forward to the year to come. And I have had a year that requires much looking back upon. From the joys of a new book and new students to the quite literal heartbreak of a mid-year heart […]

Change “Change is a tonic.” Boy, I wish I had written that. But, I didn’t. Just another example of the many pithy things my small but perfectly formed brain has missed. It was written by William Zinsser, the author of the best book about writing (On Writing Well) and it rang true as soon as […]

Shooting and Thinking Like a Pro

The hardest part of the class, Shooting and Thinking like a Pro, that I teach with Scott Rouse and Jeff Wendorff is coming up with a title that captures everything that we do in the class. I have taught the class for more than 15 years and it must have had half a dozen titles- […]

Tis the season for many of us to go out into the elements and photograph snowy winter scenes. I have done this for years and for many of them I was often disappointed with the images I got. They were perfectly nice and technically fine but there was something missing- they didn’t look wintery even […]

New Zealand!

For the last three weeks I have been touring New Zealand on an end of the year holiday. Just the two of us, no rushing around, no big objectives, no projects to work on, just having fun. I didn’t even take a tripod! What did I take? My old Nikon D300s (because it is the […]

Here is an odd shot. I wanted to get a shot of the cruise ships that come into Bar Harbor but I didn’t want a standard ugly shot of a big boat. (Why did I want a picture of a cruise ship you ask? Because the book is geared for tourists and thousands of tourists […]
